Vega Sicilia Único 2008 (Cabernet Sauvignon and Tempranillo)
A unique wine like this one does not require an introduction, because it has successfully overcome all limitations to becoming a worldwide symbol. Vega Sicilia Único 2008 assembles to perfection the qualities of tempranillo and cabernet sauvignon. After unique processes of winemaking and aging (it is probably one of the wines with the longest aging of the world, as it can spend almost 10 years between wood and bottle), it becomes a wine of inimitable character and style: elegant, complex, with a huge capacity to evolve. All of this has catapulted Único to the Olympus of wines and has turned it into a legend.

Experts · Vega Sicilia Único 2008
Robert Parker: 96/100 (Vega Sicilia Único 2008)2008 was a challenging vintage in Ribera del Duero, a vintage marked by a severe frost on September 24th. The vineyards of Vega Sicilia were saved by some anti-frost burners that really made the difference. Even though, there are only some 70,000 bottles of 2008 Único, a wine that will be released around March 2016 after the 2007, and before they sell 2005 and 2006. It's a fresher, more mineral version of Vega, and very much Vega in character. It has a certain aroma that I cannot define that I also found in the 2011 Valbuena. The palate is surprisingly polished; the wine is quite accessible from now on, with fine tannins and a subtle thread of acidity going through the core. This is a lighter version of Único, but one style I like very much; it's a wine that should drink well throughout its life. A triumph for the vintage conditions.
